] >> obama: four years ago we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost the auto industry was on the brink of collapse, the financial system has frozen up and because of the resilience and determination of the american people we have begun to fight our way back. we have seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back and house has begun to rise. but we all know we still have a lot of work to do. so the question is not where we have been, but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed towards the wealthy and roll back regulations, that we'll be better off. i have a different view. i think we have got to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure we're helping small businesses and companies here in the united states, that we take some of the money we're saving as we wind down two wars to rebuild america. now it ultimately is going to

, fight for it. obama: that's what we've done. romney: you've been president four years. you've been president four years. you said you'd cut the deficit in half. the cbo says we'll have a trillion dollar deficit each of the next four years, if you're reelected, we'll get to a trillion dollar debt. you have said before you'd cut the cef sit in half, and i love this idea of $4 trillion in cuts, getting closer to a balanced budget, except we still show trillion dollar deficits every year. that doesn't get the job done. let me come back and say why is it that i don't want to raise taxes. why don't i want to raise taxes on people? and actually you said it back in 2010, you said, look, i'm going to extend the tax policies that we have now, i'm not going to raise taxes on anyone because when the economy's growing slow like this, when we're in recession, you shouldn't raise taxes on anyone. well, the economy is still growing slow. as a matter of fact, it's growing much more slowly now than when you made that statement. and so if you believe the same thing, you just don't want to raise taxes

and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the americans people. it has killed jobs. and the best course for health care is to do what we did in my state. craft a plan at the state level that fits the needs of the state. and then let's focus and get the cost down for people, rather than raising it with a $2500 additional premium. >> mr. president, the argument against repeal? >> well, four years ago when i was running for office i was traveling around and having those same conversations that governor romney talks about. and it wasn't that just small businesses were seeing costs sky rocket and they couldn't get affordable coverage. it wasn't that this was just the biggest driver of our federal deficit, but it was families who were worried about going bankrupt if they got sick. millions of families all across the country. they had a preexisting condition, they might not be able to get coverage at all. if they did have coverage, insurance companies might impose an arbitrary limit. and so as a consequence, they're paying their

years ago i became the luckiest man on earth because michelle obama agreed to marry me, and so i just want to wish, sweetie, you happy anniversary and let you know that a year from now we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. >> congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i'm sure this was the most ro n romantic place you could imagine here with me. congratulations. >> that was, i hate to say it, charming. >> yeah. >> james. >> yeah. >> where did that come from? >> it came from mitt romney. he's rather notorious for telling nox that go over lie lead balloons. this did not. he finally found his groove as far as a comedian is concerned. at least for that moment. >> let's talk about the president. he was the one i think that was the base of most consternation. you know, he was looking down a lot. did he know and what did you think about the fact of that split screen? there we are watching it now. we never didn't see the split screen it seemed, and he was pretty much ignoring it. >> unfortunately, he made the mistake that was made once before with

president obama had a bad night. he's had a great four years considering and that's where my focus goes from here, but i'm not going to be in denial that the president needs to pivot on this and needs to get aggressive on the record, not so much to be negative against things that romney has said. we all know that. state what you've established. where was the automobile loan and the saving of billions of jobs? where was the private sector job growth? why wouldn't he mention not outsourcing and creating jobs in america in almost to the point where the president's team failed him. >> performance, the campaign surrogates that were out ahead of time were saying that mitt romney is a great gatdebatgator debator. >> that is political russian roulette. we have a narrow window of opportunity to make sure that the vote gets out. what the president did last night was energize the suppress the vote people trying to intimidate obama supporters. on the other hand you have the left now looking for direction saying, okay, mr. president, do you really believe in what you're saying because there wer

registered e independent who voted for president obama last year may have said it best. >> i felt like governor romney stepped up his game in terms of bringing something new to this campaign. >> reporter: we had a diverse group, a few new to politics, some swing voters, age 57 to 17. all relieved to hear directly from the two candidates instead of all the negative ads bombarding the state. how many of you saw something in governor romney you had not seen before? >> ultimately i think he was very compassionate and he seemed like his policies were actually sensible. >> if you notice, there's a four-step plan. this is one, two, three, four. he's very clear in talking to us. >> reporter: despite all of that, for some president obama still won the night because he came across as the person they could relate to. >> i feel like i want a president i can connect with. he looked to the camera and addressed us. and mitt romney did not do that. >> i like how obama talked about the middle class. i personally don't know any millionaires and there's a lot more of us in the middle class. >> reporter:

what president obama would give them if they give him another four years. >> romney, they say, will ultimately rise in the polls because of his debate perfo performance. for that small number of voters that haven't made up their minds, has this helped romney? >> very difficult past few weeks, if last night went well for the president you kind of have a hardening of the belief that the race is virtually sealed, out of reach. the debate has ended that discussion and it's going to remind us, move into the conversation, a reminder that the president faces in this debate. mitt romney did had himself some good with those undecided voters and just as importantly energized the he republican base. there's a sense of retooling in the obama campaign, look, incoming presidents often have problems in their first debate. people don't talk to you like that in the oval office. no question the president needs a reset. >> ron brownstein, thank you very much for your wise words of analysis. cnn will reair the presidential debate in case you didn't see it. it will reair the debate at 1:00 pm eastern. >

record and explaining what four more years of president obama would be like and laying out his own proposal and defending them well. romney did very well. the obama team is not going to roll over and say, i guess we lost, we'll give up. they will counter attack in a lot of ways. i think it's very important that romney stay on the offensive until the next two weeks until the next debate he has with president obama. they really need to -- enough patting themselves on the back. it's new now. i said to someone this morning in the romney campaign, they called up and said thanks for your praise. i said you guys did great, you get to enjoy this morning. go back on the offensive, continue to make your case, the key is to stay on the offensive, not let what happened in denver stay in denver but use it as an inflection point for the rest of the campaign. jenna: you're a tough critic. you say all right. here is what you need -- >> to their credit they are giving a foreign policy speech monday at the virginia military institute. i has to layout his policy-heavy forward looking agenda. maybe he

a turning here over the last several years, and the obama administration, i mean, last night, he, you know, said oil and gas increased under my watch, which is true, a lot is private initiative, so i think the administration, because of the job aspect of it, because of the economic development aspect, because of what it does to american competitiveness, he's come around to a position to be broadly supportive, differently from romney, but in a way that, you know, some of it -- their own supporters of the administration haven't liked. i mean there's clear differences like the keystone pipeline one area of a very sharp difference. gerri: i want to bring up green energy for a second, spending $90 billion on companies. these a taxpayer dollars, not private sector dollars. is it worth it? >> i think that when you look at the growth that's going to be out there in terms of energy demand, it makes sense to diversify. i think the lesson of the last few years is government has a clear role in terms of research and development, bringing technologies, but when the government tries to be a pr
